- Should I still let you?
Should I still let you?
- Hot wax dripping down to the wretched poor
I have seen it a thousand times before
- Shadow is turning
Like the cherubs in my mind
- Your halo whispers to me
And I hear its sweet caress
Your soul listens through me
Just like the rest
- Your face, it does the crying
In place of all those smiling
- Is it still the only one?
- Look for a kiss today
Lost on You (1998)
- Take my hands
"Lost on You"
"The Way You Move Me"
- Lost in the flame, you surround me
Lost in the flame
I cry for the rain to surround me
I cry for the rain
- I see the silly songs you sing
- I lie awake and count the stars that you see
I can't pretend to think of anyone else
You smile and reach your hand to me
In my dream
- Always watching as you glide right by
"Wheel Us Around"
- My fingers take lives
Inside the colour of sand
And you're beaming bright as the sun
- I singled out you
As simply honest and true
You justified me
With eyes only to see
That I'm empty and bright as the sun
- Can't you hear me
Crying all alone with my broken heart
- This feeling is always around when you are here
- Smile on the outside
Still there's no colour streaming
Alone on the inside
You can tell everyone who's dreaming
- I kiss you always
- I know you want to fall apart
I know you want to be in love
- A sparkle reminds me of you
Shines like you do
- A moment was all I knew
Then there was you
- Gone for awhile with all in my dreams
Here there is me and no one else
The canyon is wider than it seems
- In this slow space
Together we could stay for so long
- I still see you
Your eyes shine through the pouring rain
I still love you
Your eyes just shine for someone else
Quotes from the band
- We recorded the first album very quickly, literally living in the studio during the process. Thanks to Sub*Lime’s support, we were able to spend significantly more time on Lost On You. I think the patience and care taken with this record shows in the final product.
Quotes about the band
- The lyrics are not overtly Christian, in fact this is more like honest, personal poetry. A very personal and emotive album throughout. The mix is sometimes a bit vocal heavy at the expense of the guitars, giving it a pop sheen. But well worth checking out.
- Sam Hargreaves, "Honey - Lovely," Cross Rhythms (1 October 1997).
- What's most surprising about this album is that the band manages to maintain its artful rock and abstract poetic lyrics while conveying a sense of peaceful worship and love for God.
- Joe Rockstroh, "Lost On You," The Phantom Tollbooth (14 November 1998).
- "Lush" is probably the best word to describe this follow up to Lovely. That predecessor was a big hit with a number of friends of mine and did suggest a higher degree of artistic vision than many of the glut of alternative albums which were being released around that time. But this album is a significant leap forward.
- As far as artistic merit and expression are acts of worship, this album certainly succeeds.
- James Stewart, "Lost On You," The Phantom Tollbooth (14 January 1999).
- It's well produced, accessible and does grow on you with every listen.
- Mark Sherwood, "Honey - Lost On You," Cross Rhythms (1 February 1999).
- I've enjoyed this album immensely. It's melodic, thoughtful and imaginative.
- Andrew Privett, "Honey - Three," Cross Rhythms (2 January 2002).
- Musically, Honey creates a lush bed of guitars and soft keyboard touches.
- John Wilson, "Honey - a Review," The Phanton Tollbooth (5 April 2002).
- Of course, with a name like "Honey" and an album called Lovely, you should know what to expect from this album. That's right, dark, dreary, sharp-edged alternative rock.
- [T]he band is shrouded in mystery partially because they intended to be.
- [W]hoever is behind the microphone in this album has a smooth, effervescent voice that somehow combines clarity of tone with such muddled delivery that I defy you to pick out what he's saying at any point.
